It's been raining cats and dogs.
I had on my hood and bent to put the grocery bags in the car. the hood of my jacket slipped over my eyes as i bent so i didn't see that the trunk lid was not up all the way, and ran my nose right into it.

i did manage to get the bags into the trunk and the trunk lid closed. then yanked the hankie out of my pocket because i realized that i was bleeding. a lot.

luckily, the rain washed it away...

i walked back into the store and the manager saw me and immediately got me sitting down and brought me ice and asked if I needed him to call someone. I said no - I just wanted to be somewhere there were people while I figured out if I'd broken it.

Eventually, it stopped bleeding.

So I went home.

I did muse about the potential conversation if I went in to my doc about my nose *again*. (I had run into the door and thought I'd broken it, about a year ago.) Did x-rays and everything...

"Are you sure your husband isn't beating you?"
"oh - not nearly enough."

Oh shesh! i understand this SO well. i'm glad you're OK! i'm such a clutz, and when i run into things, i tend to REALLY run into them. i smash my face or shoulder into door frames all the time...i also tend to trip and to smash fingers in doors a lot. Since i'm usually mostly Ok when it happens, it tends to be an endless source of amusement to Sir and family members when it happens.
It really DOES look funny when i turn and walk right into a door frame that i thought i was going to clear, though. :)
